Re: Oil furnace ?
said by rawgerz:
Nothing is free, you pay 10K upfront to reclaim a well. This is a dead relative's property, and I'm not thrilled with the $1200 oil bill every month when the heat is at 50f.
I don't care what happens to the furnace, this **** is too expensive
Get a new oil company. The cheapest road diesel is $4.15, my oil company of many years in the last year, the price sky rocketted. They had the balls to sell at $4.15 a gal last delivery. Manager said thats just how it is and he cant do anything, ULSD heating oil yada yada he said. Switched, new delivery was $3.69 a gal. Huge difference. Shop around. Some companies have a business model of subsidizing service contracts with sky high oil prices. Best choice is have 1 company for maintenance, and a 2nd, preferably delivery-only, for oil. Plus there is no conflict of interest for rich burn settings

This is what I do. I use a local heating/cooling outfit for the yearly boiler service, and I have three different local oil distributors that I call for price before ordering fuel oil.
I just had oil delivered today, and I ended up paying $3.87 a gallon; a few weeks ago, gasoline was cheaper, so the fuel oil would have been as well. Prices tend to bounce wildly this time of year. With the recent trend upwards, I figured I better order now rather than wait another week.--

Same here. Was getting gouged with contract auto delivery, so now I shop around. $3.66/gal for last week's fill, the first of the winter.
